    That is revealing that they would use a term like that.

    I suspect that for many on the far right, any job not in chains is indeed a golden ticket.

    Put his resume side by side with Obama's. Perhaps he should. Hell, I'm just as qualified as Obama. So are you, I'm certain.

    Sorry. I am sadly not. I taught Government and American History for 33 years and now work in my local State Legislature as Chief of Staff for a Representative. While I am proud of my career, that does not qualify me in my eyes to be President on the level with Barack Obama. But thanks for the compliment.

    Obama has never run a business. He never served in national government meaningfully (he spent his two years as senator campaigning for President and not showing up for votes). He's never been a Governor, or overseen a budget.

    He organized ACORN-like events in south Chicago, and now he's trying to grasp the complexities of a messy world and a messier national budget. And he's so far in over his head, he doesn't have a clue what to do.

    I did.

    In fact, as I read more about the bill being obstructed here, I am opposed to the bill. I side with teh democrats in opposition to it. I vehemently disagree with tehir tactics despite the fact that I agree with their position.

    I just firmly oppose the idea that the ends justify the means.

    Remember in the next election that Democrats are cowards and run and hide. Vote Republican. Wisconsin Democrats show up and cast your vote. If the bill passes it's because in the last election more voters voted for Republicans.

    But a golden parachute is entirely different eh?
